We are all born collectors. In childhood we hoard marbles, ribbons, toy soldiers, postage stamps - all manner of knick-knacks - and experience an instinctive thrill in finding the next and better one. This stays with us through our adult life and this book looks at collectors around the world, and the things that they have graduated to collecting. The book is not only about the various types of things that people collect, but also the innovative and stylish way that they choose to display their collections for the world to see. The collectors are broken down into 10 categories, from passionates to junkies, through beachcombers, inheritors, dreamers and more. There is also a section at the back of the book on the many ingenious ways that they use to display these collections.
